Come lift your voice for the trees, for corporate responsibility, our children’s well-being and a livable climate!
You are invited to join Mothers Out Front members at the South End Forum next Tuesday, March 26! National Grid will be on hand to talk about their gas worker lockout, and we will have a chance to speak out against their lack of leadership and inaction on climate change!
Boston Mothers out Front leader Claire Corcoran has secured a featured spot on the agenda to talk about how many trees in Boston have been compromised by large gas leaks, and the FUTURE bill that provides municipalities a way to get reimbursed for street trees damaged by gas leaks as well as incentives to innovate to transition away from gas.
The South End Forum brings together 18 neighborhood associations located in the South End of Boston. Boston city councilors and state representatives will be in attendance.
Please wear your Mothers Out Front tee if you have it and sign in with the Mothers Out Front volunteer team when you get there!
Below is a map of gas leaks in the South End.
Please join Mothers Out Front Worcester and 350 Central MA for an urgent conversation on gas leaks and climate change in our city.
This event is wheelchair accessible and offers free childcare.
Worcester has over 800 methane gas leaks, some on school properties and in other sensitive locations. Join us to learn about the hazards these leaks pose to our children, environment, and health.
After months of research and an audit of gas leaks in close range of a number of our public schools, we are organizing this urgent public conversation to galvanize our community to take local action on the serious threats posed by aging gas infrastructure and climate change. These issues pose significant environmental justice concerns for people of color, low-income, and immigrant communities in the city, and for our city as a whole.
Mothers have a unique stake in this issue—the wellbeing of our children and future generations depends on it! Mothers Out Front Worcester is harnessing the urgency of this moment and our deep care for our children to band together for meaningful change in our community.
Together with community partners, we will explore what actions we can take as a community and as individuals to reduce the harm caused by aging gas infrastructure and leaks to ensure a healthier, greener future for our kids and the community at large.
Featuring speakers from Gas Safety USA, Mass Energy Consumer Alliance, the Worcester Tree Initiative, and more.
Green House Fest offers an opportunity to visit Brookline homes and homeowners who use heat pumps for heating and cooling, induction stoves for cooking, electric cars, solar panels, urban food gardens, composting, and other features that remove oil and gas from daily use.
Put on your walking shoes, open the map and set out to explore. Since no two homes are the same, nor are any two installations, we encourage you to make multiple stops and hear about the experiences from your Brookline neighbors!
Learn how to reduce your contribution to carbon pollution and protect the climate for our children.
The online map for the Green House Fest is linked on the right. A print map will be available in April.
We are looking for more electric cars to show during our tour: sign up to bring your car.
